Despite no official confirmation from the club, the Daily Mail are reporting that Martin Jol has moved to sign former Real Madrid midfielder Mahamadou Diarra on a six month contract.
There has been plenty of talk of the Malian signing for Fulahm for quite some time, the latest coming towards the end of the January transfer window. Nothing went through then, but the reports suggest a deal has now been struck which could well signal the end of Dickson Etuhu's career at Craven Cottage.
Jol has some minor doubts as to whether Diarra can adapt to the Premier League but he's sure that in the six months on the table, Diarra can prove his worth.
At 30, the former partner of Michael Essien at Lyon still has years left in him and, if the rumours are to be believed, this could be quite a coup for Fulham.
